The Foresters hosted a spring invitational at Rock Hollow Golf Club, one of the state's top venues, and finished third in a field of six. Andrew Porterfield and Wes Knuth were HC’s most steady golfers on the day. Porterfield shot a 39 on the front and a 38 on the back for a 77, which tied him for fifth in the individual standings. Knuth started with a 41 and finished with 37 for a 78. Jay Tropf, who was one under par through 10 holes, ran into some trouble on the back nine and finished with a 79. Justin Knierim provided the final individual score, an 85, to give the team a 319 for the round.
Tri-State University took the team title with a 296. Franklin College was second with a 308 followed by HC (319), Manchester College (326), Anderson University (339), and the University of St. Francis (354).
“Rock Hollow is a very nice course and is a treat for us and other teams to play,” said Coach Schownir. “I never like to have to count an 85, but Rock Hollow can do that do you if you're not hitting the ball well. This is the first time we hosted a spring invitational in several years. We'll do this again next year and try to make it an annual event." The men are now 32-47 on the year.
